++ Mara Wilson, Aubrey Plaza and Stephanie Beatriz have all recently come out as bisexual. In a world where media perception of bisexuality is often skewed, either not taken seriously or barely acknowledged and erased altogether (sadly, even within the LGBT community as well), it's always wonderful seeing those in the public eye come out as such. (ﾉ◕ヮ◕)ﾉ*:･ﾟ✧
++ In related news, the California Board of Education has unanimously approved of teaching LGBT history in public schools. In my opinion, this is an amazing step forward for not just inclusive learning, but is also hopefully provides a safe place for students to learn about the history of the LGBT movement and the importance it has today. I like that it'll include gender roles too. No doubt this won't go over smoothly for certain parents who will be "aghast" about this new curriculum, and I expect there will be bumps in the road along the way, but I think this is incredibly healthy for kids to learn about this stuff. I truly think adults underestimate the intelligence of children, and teaching them about this isn't provocative or inappropriate because, well, it's part of fucking life. It's incredibly relevant to everything that is happening all around them. I mean, I never learned about of any LGBT history until much later in life, from both online and in college courses (where the minimal amount was discussed), and I honestly wished I had that opportunity long ago. Hopefully this will open the door for more states to do the same.
++ In case anyone has been living under a rock (lol puns), Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson now has an official YouTube channel! Dwayne has actually been quite in-tune with not just social media, but also respects new media platforms and content creators (which he plans on collaborating and doing more things with on his channel). He knows what's up when it comes to things like Twitter and Instagram and such, and his friendship with Lilly Singh is probably the best thing ever. She helped promote his channel with these hilarious sketches.
